Seeking the Lion within the Lamb

Jesus IS our slain Lamb. But He is also called the Lion in Revelation.

"But one of the twenty-four elders said to me," Stop weeping! Look, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the heir to David's throne, has won the victory. He is worthy to open the scroll and it's seven seals." (Rev. 5:5)

He is BOTH our Lion and our Lamb. Paul could not find anyone worthy to open the scroll. But one of the elders told him to look, the Lion within the Lamb was worthy.

Jesus comes to us as a lamb, slain. But has the mighty power of a lion. Not only did He have the power to tear open the seven seals but He also wants to tear open the seal over our hearts. Or our relative's, enemie's, neighbor's, friend's...

"Worthy is the Lamb,who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and STRENGTH and honor and glory and praise!"

I Am Still a Daughter.

"See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle..."- Zechariah 9:9

Gentle He comes. To nurture me and comfort me. As much as I am having to learn to become a mother, I am feeling like I am losing myself and who I am.

 "God where are you?"
 "I feel alone."

 Those are thoughts that go through my head. I hate those thoughts. Because I know God has never left me and I am know I am not alone. I want to find that love for my Father. Show me God where you are. I need you.

"And He shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Powerful God, EVERLASTING FATHER, Prince of Peace."- Isaiah 9:6

Always available, always present. Waiting on me to crawl into His lap and receive a love like no other. Jesus came down to do the will of the Father. To die for me. What an unconditional love that I do not even come close to deserving. And no one goes to the Father but through Jesus Christ.

I am still His daughter. No matter how many children I might be a mother to. :)
